Phoenix Art Museum Releases Schedule of Upcoming Exhibits - Andy Warhol, Latin American Art & More!Phoenix Art Museum Releases Schedule of Upcoming Exhibits - Andy Warhol, Latin American Art & More!
by BWW News Desk - May 8, 2015

Andy Warhol: Portraits March 4—June 21, 2015 One of the most influential artists of the 20th century, Andy Warhol was at the forefront of the Pop Art movement and known for his brightly colored images. This exhibition examines Warhol's fascination with celebrity culture and the “world famous,” featuring nearly 200 screen print paintings, drawings, videos, paintings and photographs from his student days in the 1940s to the New Wave-era 1980s.

Pavilion of Australia to Celebrate Grand Opening with Fiona Hall Exhibit, 5/9Pavilion of Australia to Celebrate Grand Opening with Fiona Hall Exhibit, 5/9
by BWW News Desk - May 6, 2015

VENICE, Italy—Wrong Way Time brings together dozens of multi-part works created by artist Fiona Hall, set in dialogue with each other within a multisensory, immersive display. Hall's subject is the intersecting field of global conflict, world finances, and the environment, which she perceives as “a minefield of madness, badness, and sadness in equal measure”. Her sustained examination of the intricate interrelationship between nature and culture takes on new urgency as she responds to the realities of climate change, war, and increasing inequity. A veritable museum of transformed materials and objects, together with intense and poignant paintings and sculptures, prompt us to consider our impact on the future of nature. Hall is the first artist representative to exhibit in the new Pavilion of Australia, designed by Australian architecture firm Denton Corker Marshall, and managed by the Australia Council for the Arts —the first 21st-century and only water-facing pavilion in the historic Giardini della Biennale.

by BWW News Desk - May 4, 2015

VALENCIA, CA(Marketwired - May 4, 2015) - In, 'The Ash and the Thorn,' poet Leonard H. Roller addresses the eternal question, 'If God is good and all-powerful, how come there is so much evil?' In a collection of short poems, Roller contemplates celestial puzzles ranging from the destruction of the biblical Uzza for trying to protect the Ark of the Covenant (1 Chronicles) to possible ironies of the Resurrection, to the horrors of the Holocaust, to the wars and crimes that have haunted the human race since its beginnings.

BWW Reviews: Wilbury Group Ends Season with Spectacular, Must-See NEXT TO NORMALBWW Reviews: Wilbury Group Ends Season with Spectacular, Must-See NEXT TO NORMAL
by Robert Barossi - May 30, 2015

Some great musicals are great because they take us to Another Time, another place, perhaps another world entirely, one unrecognizable and filled with magic and fantasy. Others are great because they offer us a realistic and recognizable image of our own lives, a mirror in which we see our struggles, hopes, joys, failures and successes. The really great ones do so while offering an audience a captivating story, deeply developed and universally human characters, stunning music and unforgettable songs with amazing lyrics. One such musical is Next To Normal, now playing as the final show in The Wilbury Group's current season. (more...)

Although she had moved from Nashville some years back - living in Los Angeles and Philadelphia after leaving Tennessee - she always remained a member of our theater family, one of the leading lights among the scores of talented people who have called our city home over the years.

While many performers let their art do the talking, Steinway artist and composer Robin Spielberg doesn't mind sharing, even baring, her soul to her audiences. And while her story -- and new memoir Naked on the Bench: My Adventures in Pianoland -- is very much about her life and livelihood at the piano, it is also indelibly intertwined with health and the healing power of music. Spielberg will be performing an evening of solo piano at the South Orange Performing Arts Center on Saturday, April 11th at 8PM. (more...)

CRITICS' CHOICE: We Saw What You Did Last SummerCRITICS' CHOICE: We Saw What You Did Last Summer
by Jeffrey Ellis - Jun 9, 2015

It's another busy theater week in Tennessee, and in Nashville there are an extra 50,000 to 100,000 country music fans jamming up traffic and increasing wait times at local restaurants, thanks to CMA Music Fest, which natives and longtimers will remember as Fan Fair. So while you're steering clear of our version of Broadway in downtown Nashville, which will be teeming with more people than you can shake a stick at (as my mama would say),  you should instead make reservations to see some local talent onstage at some of the shows included in our Critic's Choice column today!

We pride ourselves on our bounteous Southern hospitality here in Nashville, so who's gonna explain this: On Thursday, as thousands of country music fans gathered downtown for CMA Fest and thousands more fans of every musical genre you can think of were headed southward for the Bonnaroo Music Festival - just another summer in Tennessee, mind you - a truck spilled its load all over Interstate 65-S, adding to the hot, humid atmosphere with a whole mess of fish parts. Yep, you heard it right: smelly, disgusting fish parts baking on the hot asphalt under the blazing sun. (more...)

BWW Reviews: IMPOSSIBLE! A HAPPENSTANCE CIRCUS Impossibly InventiveBWW Reviews: IMPOSSIBLE! A HAPPENSTANCE CIRCUS Impossibly Inventive
by Pamela Roberts - Jul 2, 2015

Happenstance Theater's IMPOSSIBLE! is impossibly inventive, whimsical, and tender. The tribute to classic Depression-era circus life uses period music, a clever costume choice or the arch of an eyebrow to convey far more than mere words are able. IMPOSSIBLE! is a family-friendly production that hits just the right tone - funny not ridiculous, kindhearted not cloying, smart not pretentious. The original piece of physical theater was devised by the Happenstance ensemble. We venture both under the big top and behind the scenes to witness the camaraderie, loneliness, frustrations and foibles of the band of performers. (more...)

BWW Review: Rollins' GUYS & DOLLS is Enjoyable, but Lacks Runyan CharmBWW Review: Rollins' GUYS & DOLLS is Enjoyable, but Lacks Runyan Charm
by Matt Tamanini - Apr 23, 2015

At its best, GUYS AND DOLLS will transport you to Another Time and place. A place where career criminals wear colorful, oddly-patterned suits; speak with humorous, but non-descript accents; and live lives in which their marker is their more sacred than gold. This place is called Runyonland. Unfortunately, as entertaining as Rollins College's production of this classic 'Musical Fable' is, it rarely ever rises to the Runyonland level. Running through Sunday, April 26th at the Annie Russell Theatre, Rollins' GUYS AND DOLLS is enjoyable, and again affirms why the program is one of the most consistent theatre companies in Central Florida, but lacks the joy and whimsy that makes GUYS AND DOLLS one of the greatest examples of the American musical theatre.

by Billie Roe - Apr 14, 2015

It was more than fitting that the New York cabaret community should honor the late Jerry Scott last Saturday night at Parnell's--the last piano bar that Jerry played before he died in April, 2013 at 67. To honor Jerry's memory and his lifetime of achievements, three devoted friends, cabaret reviewer John Hoglund, Allan Armour, and Geri Malino produced The First Annual Jerry Scott Memorial Award Show. This yearly event will not only pay tribute to Jerry's extraordinary talent, but the award will be presented to an exceptional entertainer/performer in the Manhattan Piano Bar/Lounge/Restaurant scene. The first recipient of the aptly named “Bronze Piano” was Bobby Peaco, a well-respected member of the New York cabaret community for more than 20 years. (more...)
